From yesterday’s Banker & Tradesman:

A 10-12 week new construction project is set to be undertaken in 15 days.

Newton-based Commodore Builders and Audrey O’Hagan Architects, and Boston-based Leggat McCall Properties are claiming they will build a new 10,000-square-foot green office building in downtown Boston in two weeks.

The speedy construction at 10 Post Office Square in Boston is intended to demonstrate the feasibility of squeezing inefficiencies out of the procurement and implementation process, according to Commodore.

I read this and I was like, “How do you build a building in 15 days?”

You don’t. Well, unless it’s going to be made out of straw, maybe. And, unless it’s not going to pass any building codes.

The article should have read:

Newton-based Commodore Builders and Audrey O’Hagan Architects, and Boston-based Leggat McCall Properties are claiming they will build-out a new 10,000-square-foot green office building in downtown Boston in two weeks.

A “build-out” is simply turning raw space into offices. Much less interesting, most likely.

If you like watching paint dry, however, it’s going to be a barn-burner.
